Legrand has developed dedicated solutions providing an infrastructure that is scalable at all levels: from energy distribution to data hosting and even including cooling solutions. These solutions allow you to anticipate needs, to make future upgrades possible and to increase the capacity of the data center so you can respond to your increasing requirements
IN ORDER TO MAKE YOUR DATA CENTER FUTURE-PROOF YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE TO:
ANTICIPATE NEEDS FOR FUTURE UPGRADES
The infrastructure requirements of data centers are constantly changing. Anticipating future needs is essential: adapting the physical space in the data center to the envisaged workload and possible upgrades is a real necessity. Legrand recommends that you take the scalability of infrastructures always into account.
WHEN DESIGNING YOUR DATA CENTER
Legrand can work with you on the entire design of your infrastructure. We have a centralized department which can provide you with expertise in various areas. Our expertise is your assurance of having a data center with optimum design.
WHEN CHOOSING WHICH SOLUTIONS TO IMPLEMENT
Making sure your datacenter is futureproof means you need to make sure you optimize your available space. The Legrand LCS³ range for example provides an infrastructure which supports today’s most commonly used protocols on Ethernet and Fiber Channel. It has been designed and produced to optimize space and make future upgrades easier. It gives you access to higher performance levels without requiring any additional space!
INCREASE THE DATA CENTER CAPACITY
Since IT equipment requirements change, infrastructures need to adapt to your needs and allow upgrades without disturbing the operation of existing installations. For example;
- by using technology (ie. modular UPS system)
- by design (aisle containment, PDU and structured cabling, electrical distribution in the computer room)
- by means of standards (eg: IS standard for distribution panels) Scalability requirements regarding capacity concern three main areas: connection, power and cooling.
Legrand offers innovative solutions in all three.
